Royals Safe Together

Pausing In-Person Instruction

The University of Scranton is implementing the following important safety measures to reduce the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus on campus. These additional measures are intended to provide us with the best opportunity to finish the semester in Scranton.

Given the current number of students in quarantine and isolation, the two-week period of remote instruction, as Father Pilarz announced, offers students and faculty consistency on the method of instruction without further disruption. View Father Pilarz's video message to campus here.

More importantly, limiting the movement of students on campus further decreases possible transmission of the virus. Additionally, students now in isolation and quarantine will be able to return to campus with their peers when in-person instruction resumes without concerns of the virus spreading further.

The campus remains open during this pause with the changes outlined below.
